Moment Differences In the world, we as a race have struggled with accepting the differences between our fellow-men and whether we actually accept them or merely tolerate them.This can be shown around the world however through one unfortunate accident Laramie Wyoming is plum smack in the middle of this chaotic mess and it led to a more specific examination of what people really think. It shows that people can tolerate anything, but that doesn 't mean they accept it. It shows the preprogrammed attitudes towards something different.
